Just in case you missed it the first time, Hewson have re-released Uridium for a piddling £2.99. It's your job to save the universe (again) by flying out into space and intercepting a fleet of alien dreadnought cruisers, currently winging their way towards earth on a mission of bug-eyed nastiness.

You fly your manta fighter over the surface of the spaceship, dodging the aerials and buildings and blowing the Sam Hill out of the alien defence fighters.

The graphics throughout are fantastic, and the action is some of the best we've seen. At the new budget price, you'd have to be completely bonkers not to buy it.
